Well, I installed it on one of my machines with no problems (now that
syslod and dpkg have been updated), but I think the big complaint is
going to be when many user's shell functions break because they wrote
them like this

  foo () { bar }

At least I think that's one that breaks...

But there's nothing we can do about that.
